Montgomery County Player Wheels His Way to $25,123.50 Racetrax Prize

Superfecta Wheel wager leads to big win

A Silver Spring Racetrax player won over $25,000 in July by placing a Superfecta Wheel wager.

This type of bet allows players to select at least five horses to finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in exact order. The Montgomery County player won with the numbers 9, 8, 3 and 11, using a two-number combination for first and second place finishers. He placed the bet for 10 drawings and his horses crossed the finish line in the correct order in one race to give him his big win. The 41-year-old claimed a prize of $25,123.50 at Maryland Lottery headquarters this week.

His lucky bet also benefits Hyattsville Convenience Store located at 2230 University Boulevard East in Hyattsville. For its role in selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more, the lucky Prince George’s County store will receive a $251.23 retailer bonus from the Lottery.
